Enter another world, where idols and temples, graves and goddesses make up the fabric of everyday life.Paphos is where Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, is said to have risen from the waves that crash on its shores. tou Romiou, or Aphrodite’s Rock, is a massive chunk of stone that marks the spot. Her birthplace was a place of pilgrimage for the entire Hellenic world. Aphrodite’s presence seems to have drawn other divinities and notable mortals as well. Excavations have unearthed the spectacular 3rd -5th century-mosaics of the Houses of Dionysus, Orpheus, and Aion, and the Villa of Theseus — buried for sixteen centuries and yet remarkably intact. Their grace of line and subtlety of color will surely inspire elevated feelings in those who see them. Also in this region is the Odeon Theater, a stone structure still used as it was in ancient times for outdoor concerts, plays, and games. Small wonder then that the whole town of Pafos is included in the official UNESCO list of cultural and natural treasures of world heritage.
Pamper yourself even further by settling into a lodging situation fit for Zeus himself.

As opposed to hotel rooms, these properties are a little more pleasing thanks to ample amenities, gorgeous views, tastefully decorated rooms, and best of all, variety. No matter what it is you seek you're sure to find it somewhere
Coral Bay itself is a 600m crescent of soft white sand, book-ended by a pair of headlands. It is home to a handful of top-notch hotels and the neighbouring marina looks set for completion in the near future. However, it's the glassy waters offshore that everyone comes for. While the sea is calm year-round the same can't be said of the beach, where you'll find every conceivable activity from banana boat rides to jet skis for hire.
